YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, September 10. /TASS/. The Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Court’s chairman Alexander Chukhrai has recommended Chechnya’s leader Ramzan Kadyrov to keep within the established procedure of legal appeal and file a motivated complaints against court rulings concerning the classification of religious texts as extremist ones.
"I respect Ramzan Kadyrov as a politician, a republic leader, but I would like him to keep within the civil legislation," Chukhrai told TASS on Thursday. "In this case, he should lodge a motivated complaint. There are appeals instances. There is the Supreme Court after all. I would like him to keep within this procedure. It is necessary to go the way of law."
Earlier, a Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Court judge, Natalya Perchenko, following a lawsuit by Prosecutor Tatyana Bilobrivets, declared as "extremist" a book called Dua (Calling out) to God: its Role and Place in Islam. Al-Fatiha and other surahs in the Quran were the centre of controversy. The term "extremist" was applied to such quotes from the Quran as "It is You we worship and You we ask for help (Al-Fatihah) and "Say, [O Muhammad], ‘I only invoke my Lord and do not associate with Him anyone.’ (Al-Jinn).
Kadyrov passed remarks on the ruling of the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk judge, characterizing her as a national traitor. He issued an instruction to appeal the ruling.
The Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Court’s chairman said the ruling had not yet come into force and no complaints had been received. "Concerning possible punishment of the judge and the prosecutor, we cannot now say whether this ruling was right or wrong but any judge may make mistakes. Our court is working efficiently, with 79% of right verdicts whereas the region’s average is 76%," Chukhrai said.
